Any Wings fans in Louisville, KY?

02 June 2009 - 11:18 PM

So I have to head to Louisville - a true hotbed of hockey fandom! - Thursday afternoon and will be there till the following friday. So that means i have to find somewhere to watch Games 4, 5 and 6 if necessary. Any tips? I'm staying at the Galt House Suites right on the River downtown, so anything down there is preferred...but i'd especially like to get together with any fans here if they exist! I've done this the past two years (last year I was in the air during Game 6!) so I know about their little Friday Night Live area...but that's all pretty lame and no sportsbar that i'm aware of.


Explain to me why Orpik can do whatever he wants...

I'm sick andf****** tired of Orpik running our guys all over the place, cross checking, interfering, boarding, you name it, with complete impunity. Has he gotten a single penalty yet? did he get the one for the rape of Helmer? Regardless he committed at least a dozen blatant ones tonight...Did they get rid of the rule against cross checking a player face first into the boards and not tell us? He Cross checked Hossa down Three times by my count. What I don't understand is that it's not like he's Scott Neidermeyer....he's a hack goon who has no shot, can't play position, and simply holds and interferes constantly.

To my great surprise, Babcock all but called out Orpik's blatant interference all game long in the post game...referring to "one of their players" who he saw commit a bunch of interference penalties worse than the one called on Ericcson. He said more about that disparity than I've ever heard him say about officiating..i.e. they "were given" the power play that made the difference and the Wings didn't. He knows as well as everyone not wearing black and yellow that was af****** gift.


Starting 2-0 = 32-1 all time - who was the one?

I'm curious who the ONE team in history is that came back from a 0-2 hole after losing both on the road to win the cup. did they do it in six or seven games?

You stay classy Pittsburgh!

They are also offering to pay any fines of anyone who throws a hubcap or whatever else on the ice when an octupi gets thrown out....good god are they trash!

Future of Chicago Blackhawks

27 May 2009 - 10:49 PM

In the post game presser Babcock was asked about what he thought about the Blackhawks being so young and what their potential was and said to the effect: "Kane is a good kid and a solid NHL player, but the guy you build a team around is the Toews kid...he has to be the #1 priority. I know they have some cap issues and they'll decide on the goalie situation so next year isn't too bad, but I think in 2 years it gets ugly and they'll have to make some tough choices."

He was referring specifically to the salary cap and the quote I recall for sure is "In two years it is going to get ugly for them"....what's the deal on all that? Will the be able to keep Kane and Toews long term? And which do you think is the higher priority? Personally, I think Kane gets more credit than he deserves and is a bit of a hot dog...he has a lot of growing up to do. Toews on the other hand is a very very good player who is going to be a star.

Otherwise I'm aware of the Huet/Khabibulin issues...but what others are there? Doesn't Campbell make a ridiculous amount...someone told me the other day he made as much as Lidstrom?!?!??!
